The Giveaway is now closed. Thank you for entering.
Welcome!!! I am so excited to present my first major pattern-- the Clementine Girl's Purse. Allow me to give a little background. I have this adorable niece who needed a Christmas gift. Her mama suggested a diaper bag for the new dolly Santa might be bringing. I decided to create something that her very stylish mama wouldn't mind carrying around. So, I sat down last Thursday while the family watched Survivor, and sketched out some ideas. I was so excited I sewed up two different muslin mock-ups that very night, and made the first from a full-sized pattern Saturday. I was partly inspired by the gathered patch pocket tutorial from Made By Rae, and so named the purse after her daughter.
Some stats on the purse itself:
Finished dimensions are 8" by 10", 2.5" deep. Advanced beginning to intermediate sewing skills will be needed.
I've made a very detailed PDF pattern with LOTS of pictures, which will be available starting Monday in my new etsy store. Introductory price...$5!!!
So, now to what you've all been waiting for....
The rules are simple. Leave a comment on this post, with you email address if it is not linked to your profile. I will select TWO lucky winners via random integer.

Now, don't let this be the only time you visit my blog. I have more free patterns to share, and more things to show off as Christmas gets near. I LOVE to play Mrs. Santa Claus, don't you?
Best wishes to all of you, and THANK YOU for visiting!
P.S. There is a special little boy and girl who need lots of support right now. There's a button towards the bottom of my blog. Go and see what you might be able to do!
